Zak Jules: "There is No Hiding Place in Our Dressing Room"

12:30 pm Tuesday, 8 October 2019  
Saddlers centre back Zak Jules has spoken ahead of this weekend's League Two clash with Leyton Orient and revealed there were plenty of strong words said inside the changing room following Saturday's disappointing defeat to Salford City.
Darrell Clarke's Saddlers arrived at the game after winning four all-competition games in a row, including much-needed league victories over Morecambe, Scunthorpe United, and Crawley Town.

However, the Saddlers massively underperformed against Graham Alexander's Ammies, shipping three unanswered goals, with manager Clarke going on to apologise to supporters during his post-match interview.

And Jules, who has made eleven first-team appearances so far this season, revealed that there were many choice words and phrases exchanged in the dressing room following the defeat to Salford - with the group insisting that performance cannot be repeated.

22-year-old Jules said; "There’s no hiding place in our changing room. Everyone is going to say exactly how it is and that’s exactly what’s happened.

"We say what we think but then it’ll get put behind us so we can move forward. Salford was a very disappointing performance from every single one of the boys.

"I think we lacked that little bit of fight. It’s down to us to regroup, take a look at ourselves and go again."

After struggling to secure a place in the team during the opening weeks of the start of the season, ex-Macclesfield Town defender Jules has found his way into the side and, despite being moved from centre-half to left-back, insists he’s enjoying playing in a somewhat unfamiliar position.

Zak continued; "When I’m given an opportunity I need to go out there and give it 100 per cent. Hopefully me giving my all will be enough to solidify my place in the starting XI.

"Left-back is different from centre-half, it’s a lot more demanding than centre-half in terms of getting up and down the pitch but I’m enjoying it.

"I’ll play anywhere the manager wants me to play as long as I’m on the pitch and I can help the team. It’s another string to my bow."
